Coffee Flour is....
An agricultural innovation with the potential to do some really great things for the world. And we don’t just mean the food world.
Each year the billions of coffee beans that eventually make their way into the Americanos, lattes, and no-foam, extra-hot, triple-shot cappuccinos of the world are harvested by milling and extracting them from the coffee plant. The surrounding pulp, known as the coffee cherry, is discarded. It often gets dumped into rivers or left to rot in heaps. So we invented something better to do with it. Something that’s better for everyone.
For farmers and families in coffee growing countries, it will create sustainable jobs and a new revenue source for some of the poorest areas of the world. For the environment, it will remove a harmful botanical waste product from streams and soil, strengthening the land and lives of the people and species there. And for the rest of us, it will add a nutritious and distinctly flavorful ingredient to the global menu.
We have a passion for coffee, and for the people, and communities who grow it. So finding a use for those discarded cherries became our purpose. We pioneered a process that converts this coffee byproduct into a nutrient-dense new super-ingredient we call coffee flour™ .
What we’re most proud of is that we’ve structured our business model so that the positive social, environmental, and economic impacts will be shared by all.
*coffee flour™ is set for commercial rollout in 2015. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
coffee flour is in production in 3 continents and growing quickly. We are now converting waste into benefit in Hawaii, Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Vietnam. But our mission is a global one, so join our movement and help achieve the greatest sustainable impact possible.
Coffee cherries are packed with nutrition. It happens that they can be milled into one of the most uniquely dynamic and flavor-rich alternative (gluten free, that is) flours out there.
